Where can I see the museum’s collection?

The Open Air Museum’s collection comprises around 152,000 objects, including carts, household textiles, regional costumes and toys. Some of these objects can be seen in the museum park, but the vast majority is kept in our repository.



The museum also has an extensive documentary collection comprising books, magazines, photographs, films and slides. This collection can be seen in the museum’s library.


Digitised collection

We are currently busy preparing a presentation of our collection on this website. By mid-2017 you will be able to view around 20,000 objects here. In the meantime you can look at some of our digitised collection using the following links: Gelderland Collection, Modemuze, Netherlands Digital Collection and Europeana Fashion.
